This was the album that turned me into a Fishbone fan. I had been aware of them for some time, but a good friend of mine made me sit down and listen to everything they had done, starting with this one (which was new at the time). This album, like the one before, contains some really good songs, but they just don't all entirely fit together. The album marked a real transition from all of the different sounds Fishbone had exhibited in the past into that of an alternative rock band. I am still a big fan of this album. However, with my deeper knowledge of the band, I now realize how much of a departure it was from what they had been. You know that's not entirely fair...I guess I should say this one was an expansion of what they were as a band, which was always a diverse set of sounds. It just got even more diverse with this record.
The European vinyl version is split into an LP plus a 7" for no apparent reason. The 7" contains the tracks "No Fear" and "Nutt Megalomaniac". The Brazilian version of this record is one of the more difficult Fishbone items to track down. The Spanish version, which I only learned existed in 2018, can also be a tough one. All versions have gotten crazy expensive since 2021. 30th anniversary interest? Bored/anxious pandemic buying? I don't know. I do know the European version with the 7" is outpacing the others in value, despite being the most common version. I hope you got one while you had the chance.
